When you have four adults and seven children in one house for five days it has the potential for disaster. Or at the very least annoyance, fights, and weakened friendships. Thank heavens our week was none of the above. It was fabulous!
And let's just say the adults had some fun as well. This was the first time, EVER, that my best friend and I actually got to watch our mindless Monday night television (The Bachelorette- don't judge me) together instead of texting each other throughout the whole show. Yes, it took us three and a half hours to watch the entire show because we couldn't stop laughing and talking, but it made the show so much more fun. The hubbies were free to go out on the town and enjoy their hot wings and didn't even have to witness our ridiculousness. And the next night Sarah and I relived our high school days and went to see our old boyfriends (nkotb) perform at Summerfest. It was a great show.
This morning my oldest and dearest friend and her family packed up their family and headed back home to Oklahoma. We miss them already. I guess the idea of starting our own commune didn't really sound as good to them as it did to us. Ah well. It was fun while it lasted.
Next up the 4th of July! One of my very favorite days of the year. Celebrating our fabulous country with noodle salads, sprinklers, picnics, and fireworks. Life is good.
